    There have been at least 2 other GoL simulations before the music one [​IMG]

    Always good to have more!

    it doesn't want to load for me:
    -R4, 2gb sandisk, fw 1.18

    It simply hangs at "game loading" still in the R4 gui.

    This looks excellent, I can't wait to try it out.

    If you're interested in GoL, this site is a good place to start. There's all kinds of links and info about the stuff you can do with it. For example, this guy implemented a complete Universal Turing Machine in Game of Life.

    (I'm the author of DSlife.)

    It has always worked on my M3 Simply while testing, which is pretty much the same thing as an R4, isn't it? So it should work... But I have had this problem once before, and I found out that a certain function caused it to hang at the "Game loading" screen. I use this function to print the current generation that the life simulation is on, so what I've done is removed that feature temporarily and made this new binary: http://viewsourcecode.org/downloads/ds-lif...generations.nds . Tell me if it works or not! [​IMG]

    using R4...
    Im getting both screens RED with both files
    no porblem in the "loading" part at all
    =(

    this release looks great
    you should make more than 2 states and some pre set cellular automaton
    like wireworld, and all that

    That means it couldn't load the data files. You have to make a folder on your storage device called "data" if it doesn't exist already, then copy the "life" folder that comes with the download to the data folder.

    Thank you for the fast reply and quick analysis of the problem.
    This binary does indeed load on my R4, and it works great.


    good work

    lol. that's even worse. Can't stand sports games. But still, what's the point of this game and what do you do? It says "Game of Life" yet all it seems to be is some big black dots on a grid.
    Oh, well, i just clicked the wikipedia link, and I understand now. How do i program/changes the rules of it?

    it's kinda ironic considering GBAtemp is pretty much a nintendo-nerd haven.
